I am new to Mint (and am loving it...
for the most part atleast), though not so new to linux. But I am a non-techie user of linux. I use it because it is faster and Microsoft sucks.
But, I have a strange problem. Despite a decent laptop configuration with 1.5GB RAM, the machine simply slows down when playing a video.
Though it doesn't happen for every video, or immediately at the start, it is just darn irritating. The only way to fix it remains a restart, as even killing the process doesn't help.
I had a similar problem when using Ubuntu, so I guess, it has something to do with distro.
Can someone please help to narrow down this problem.
